The Cross, a Sign of Hope?


Just when we can’t seem to take any more bad news–people protesting about this or that, ISIS groups killing people–Good Friday comes.  All of the bad things in our world, the broken promises by politicians, poverty, sin, hate and destruction, is offered up on the cross and defeated. The cross, which seems like a sign of contradiction, becomes our symbol of hope. Sin, death, and Satan will not ultimately win because of the cross. This messed up world is not the end because the victory of Christ’s love triumphs over everything else. The cross is our greatest hope.

I got some artwork from a friend a number of years ago stating that when I asked Jesus how much He loves me, He says “this much,” and then He spread His arms and died for me!

    • Thanks for the compliment on the blog. I’m so glad you like it!
      As far as writing tips, I would say find yourself a good editor when you are finished with what you are writing. You don’t say what you will be writing, though it’s especially important that your first book (if that’s what you are doing) makes a good first impression. You might try resources like Writers Digest for more tips and assistance. They offer many articles and classes and have a magazine available.
      I like WordPress as a platform. My editor uses this platform as well. There are many different templates you can use on WordPress, some paid, some free. It all depends on what you want to accomplish. I agree it can be very overwhelming. I’d say take a look at the templates and make a list of choices and go from there. Best of luck to you!

  18. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    • I am using WordPress. There are all sorts of templates that can be used in WordPress, some free and some paid. I haven’t studied the other providers you mentioned. The people at WordPress have been very helpful when I have had questions or an issue. I have yet to review their tutorials, but I’m sure they are quite helpful as well. They also have a forum for questions, as I recall. Good luck on your platform! 🙂
